The growing interest in the falling standards of public schools has stimulated research into analysing what goes into the educational cauldron of improving the quality of schools. This paper aims to comparatively analyse the two provinces of Pakistan by considering the poor quality of public education as evidenced by the shared outcome variable of low student achievement levels. The provinces of Punjab and Balochistan have been judiciously selected as case study examples by adopting Mill's (1843) Method of Agreement. Through the method of thematic analysis, recruitment and accountability are identified as two major factors of effective teacher policies, the poor design of which may be considered useful in understanding the poor student achievement levels of public schools found in the two provinces. By utilising Chubb and Moe’s (1988) theory, I argue that these teacher policies of the public sector are ineffective when they are imposed on schools through democratic control.
